Displaying 3D data
Posted:
Oct 27, 2009 6:45 AM


Does any of you have tips or reading suggestions as to how I might be able to effectively display a 3D function f(x,y,z) in matlab, perhaps using a series of figures?
The data is stored in a matrix, and axis lengths typically range from 5 to 20. I'm interested in the relationship between (x,y), (x,z) and (y,z), but does it make sense to just average function values over the dimension I'm not interested in and display (x*,y*), (x*,z*) and (y*, z*) it as 2D functions with surf()? Could isosurface() help?
Any suggestions for expanding this to ndimensional data, where I want to display the relationship between the nchoose2 possible pairs of dimensions?
I'm not expecting to find "the answer", but I figured that if anywhere, I could find some useful suggestions here.
